Dead Letters- Ivy Jones, 1949
- spray paint, acrylic, pencils, markers, vintage envelope on wood panel.
This is a case where the object inspires the painting and the narrative. I’ll leave that up to you to decide, but as the title implies, the broken envelope in the middle actually is from 1949 and is addressed to: I. V. Jones.
Lots of layering, some stenciling, painting and drawing… scratch /scrape, fight with the surface.
